I love craft day with my girls and with spring here (fingers crossed) - we wanted to do something bright and springy! I came across these Spring Mason Jars and decided it was perfect for us.
* Mason Jars ($1)
* Fat Quarters ($12 for a huge bunch)
* Mod Podge
* Paper Plates
* Foam Paint Brush
* Skinny Paint Brush (not foam)
I found the fat quarters at a local quilt store - after looking all over for small flowers - I went to settle with something I didn't love and there on the counter waiting for me was a batch of the flower-printed fat quarters! I have a lot of fabric left over - we got at least 2 jars out of 1 fat quarter - so if you have fabric laying around - you're good there.
First you pour some of the Mod Podge on a paper plate. Then lay the strip in the glue and use a 1" foam brush to coat the strip on both sides. Try and keep track of which side is the front vs back because once they're coated in glue it's harder to tell.
And there you have it! Then you do it all over again!
Until your jar is completely done! It's super cute -
Your hands will get messy! The glue is sticky and it gets gloppy as you're working with it - so just embrace the mess - at least until you're done. :-)
Even Boo Bear got in on the action!
After our photo shoot - I found cute spots for them on our Ikea shelving...
I hope you'll make these jars and enjoy the fun as much as we did. I might even try doing this on full size vases next!!!
